Bennion makes for conserving
feed by poultry producers:
1. Cull laying flocks once a
week, marketing low producers.
This is known as spot culling.
2. Eliminate all male birds
unless needed for breeding.
3. Market broilers and fryers
at lighter weights.
4. Provide 6 to 8 pounds daily
of green feed or roots per 100
5. Feed a well balanced ration.
Skimping increases feed needs
per dozen eggs.
6. Feed daily at noon all moist
mash or pellets laying hens will
consume in 30 minutes.
7. Avoid filling feed hoppers

Current trends in market pri
ces for grain already reflect wea
ther reports and crop prospects
for 1948, says L. R. Breithaupt,
O.S.C. extension agricultural ec
onomist. Unfavorable conditions
for planting wheat in the Great
Plains are affecting livestock
feeding operations, also.
Despite government announced
longed rains last spring. Even
the late planted corn is mostly
General rains in the west have
been beneficial for fall-sown
grain and late pastures and
ranges. Considerable wheat
planted west of the Rockies for
harvest in 1948 is already up
with good stands.
The droughty condition that
prevailed for several weeks in
the winter wheat area of the
western plains affected the de
mand for feeder cattle. Ordinar
goals and price supports for j 'lv. many cattle are pastured in
wheat in 1948, the planting of
fall-sown grain has been affect
ed by drought during recent
weeks in the principal winter
wheat states east of the Rockies.
Belated rains have somewhat al
leviated the drought, however,
and prospects are more hopeful.
While adverse for 1948 grain
prospects, the dry weather help
ed mature this year's corn crop.
Very little damage was done to
corn by frost as had been feared
owing to lateness caused by pro-

the fall on wheat pastures in
that area. Such pastures will not
provide the usual amount of
feed. That is one of the factors
contributing to smaller numbers
of livestock to be fed this win
ter, Breithaupt reports.
An overall reduction is expect
ed in feeding operations, both
cattle and lambs, compared with
last season, according to surveys
by the USDA bureau of agricul
tural economics. In addition to
short wheat pastures, there is
less feed grain, and prices for
feed are high. Prices for stock
ers and feeders are also at near
record high levels. The 1947 lamb
crop was smaller, leaving fewer
lambs to go to feedlots.
Thus, weather conditions dur
ing the last several months have
affected crop prospects and mar
ket prices and conditions to an
unusual degree. The outcome at
harvest time in 1948 of the new
winter wheat plantings is still
